Gluten Free Dog Treats Recipe

Gluten free dog treats are very popular! We offer another of the easy dog treat recipes that our bakers in the Facebook group Homemade Dog Treats are excited about. This gluten free and wheat free dog treat recipe is offered by Cristina's Dog Treats based in Tillamook, Oregon.

This photo shows Nanqu, the dog bakery's expert taste tester, presiding over a basket of just-baked Cheesy Pawz. These turn out as soft dog treats.

Cheesy Pawz


  • 1/4 cup tapioca
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed meal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups garbanzo bean flour
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Grate cheese (can be done in a food processor)
  • Mix the water and the flax seed together.
  • Mix in the cheese
  • Let the mixture sit for a little bit
  • Mix in the tapioca flour
  • Slowly add in the garbanzo bean flour
  • Knead into a dough
  • Roll out 1/4 inch thick
  • Cut with cookie cutters into desired shapes
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • Yields 16 dog biscuits as seen in the photo

Cristina (and Nanqu) note: Tillamook Smoked Cheddar Cheese provides a pleasing aroma and flavor. Working with cheese while it is cold makes it easier to create a nice consistency.

They also want you to know that arrowroot can be used for tapioca flour. Potato flour can be substituted, but it may make the dog treats a little bit sticky.

By the way, Nanqu says he would love for you to visit him on Facebook.
